Book Overview
We Are The Cops is an adrenalin-fuelled ride through the lives of America's police, told in the authentic voices of the cops themselves. The journey begins with the rookie's first day on the job, and moves through the heartbreak of officers dying in the line of duty, the bloody reality of policing savage gang wars, the devastating consequences of drug crime, a gut-wrenching cop's eye view of 9/11, and even an encounter with a runaway gorilla called Little Joe. These real life stories from crime fighting's front line come from cops of every rank, from chiefs to street cops, working in big cities and small towns all over the US. The result is a stunning montage of brutal, funny and sometimes tragic true events which paints a vivid and unforgettable portrait of life as an American cop.
